Kids Program
Our kids’ program incorporates valuable lessons on and off the mat that promote confidence, self- belief and discipline.

Every month in the United States, three million children miss school due to fear of bullying. At Gama Filho Academy our goal is to instill in your child the confidence they need to overcome bullying without violence.

Due to the nature of its techniques, BJJ is a non-violent, effective, and complete self-defense system. Many parents want their child to learn a martial art in order to defend herself/himself against bullies or unwanted strangers. Having a safe and systematic foundation of self-defense is key for children to feel confident about defending themselves, if necessary. Because its techniques are completely based on leverage and submissions, BJJ can teach children how to properly defend themselves against bigger, stronger opponents.

Unlike many other martial arts, BJJ does not involve any kicking or punching, making it safe for children to practice and learn.
